  1. EVALUATION OF A CIGARETTE SUBSTITUTE
    John Hughes; Fiscal Year: 2001
    ..We believe it imperative to begin studying these substitutes so that, unlike low-tar/low nicotine cigarettes, we will know whether their introduction is good or bad for public health. ..
  2. REDUCED SMOKING TO PROMPT SMOKING CESSATION
    John Hughes; Fiscal Year: 2002
    ..Current public health strategies discourage reduced smoking. If we show reduced smoking prompts quit attempts, it will suggest reconsideration of reduced smoking as an intermediary step toward quitting smoking. ..
  3. Internal Barriers to Seeking Smoking Cessation Treatment
